Game & Wario Review (Nintendo)

What It Is

Wario is Mario's nemesis and he has had his own series of games for the past several Nintendo handheld and console systems. Game & Wario is the latest entry and the first Wario game for the Wii U.

Is It Fun?

Like previous Wario games, Game & Wario is a collection of micro-mini games that star a gang of crazy and bizarre characters. There are 16 games that use the GamePad in some way with some of the games relying completely on the GamePad and others that use it with your TV. All of the games are short, fast-paced and feature a lot of wacked out goals like defending strawberries from robots. One of our favorite games is called Gamer, which has you playing two games at once. You play through a series of micro games on the GamePad but at the same time a second game is taking place on the TV and you have to keep an eye on it to pause the GamePad game just in time to avoid getting busted on the TV game.

Who It’s For

The game is rated E for everyone and for Nintendo fans ages 5 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

12 of the 16 games can be played by a single-player and the other four are multi-player specific games that up to 5 people can play together. Game & Wario is a Nintendo Wii U exclusive.
